TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - Police have ruled that two unrelated Topeka deaths are homicides.

The Topeka Capital-Journal (https://bit.ly/23ZFrSv ) reports that the killings of 60-year-old Robert Williams and 21-year-old Ashlie Hundertfund bring the city’s homicide total to eight. Last year at this time, there were four recorded homicides.

Police spokeswoman Amy McCarter says no one was been arrested in Williams’ Feb. 18 death. She says the preliminary investigation didn’t point to foul play, but that an autopsy led to the homicide ruling.

McCarter says police have determined that Hundertfund was the victim of a murder-suicide. Police say 22-year-old Robert Fink killed her and then himself. Their bodies were discovered in an apartment when police were called to check on the welfare of a resident who hadn’t shown up for work on Feb. 29.
